Uncovering the Mysterious Origins of Local Field Potentials

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


In this issue of Neuron, Katzner et al. use a combination of multielectrode recordings and optical imaging to determine the spatial extent of local field potential (LFP) activity in primary visual cortex. By estimating the orientation selectivity of stimulus-evoked LFP activity from the map of orientation preference obtained using optical imaging, they find that LFP selectivity is best fit using signals within 250 μm of the recording electrode.
